“Clive van den Berg is based in Johannesburg and was born in Zambia in 1956. He is an artist working in various disciplines. Besides his studio practice he devotes much time to the curation and design of heritage projects.
In Soundings, in Passage – a solo exhibition of recent work at Goodman Gallery Johannesburg – Clive van den Berg explores new as well as familiar terrain. Characteristically, he is not bound by medium, presenting monoprints, paintings, as well as a large-scale sculpture. Many of these works – both physically and conceptually – are the result of time spent in the United States, where van den Berg was awarded a Smithsonian Artist Research fellowship, and worked at the LeRoy Neimen Center for Print Studies while on a residency at Columbia University in New York City.”

A groundbreaking exhibition opening at the Tatham Art Gallery in July will unite a broad diversity of contemporary craft producers in KZN. From the beautifully rendered work of crafters such as Bonginkosi Tshabalala and Humphrey Modibedi to commercially produced products from internationally acclaimed talents Egg Design and Richard Stretton, Meeting the Makers promises a cross-section of high quality, sustainable objects that bridge the divide between traditional craft and so-called ‘high art’.
The collection ranges from traditional Zulu ceramics to contemporary lighting designs, and includes a bespoke collection of basketry, embroidery, wood turning, jewellery and wire work. There is an impressive mix of traditional craft-making and cutting edge design, with over 150 pieces produced by nearly 100 crafters. Embroidery produced by local crafters from the Ingwavuma region sits alongside a high-tech lamp by urban product designers, Egg Designs.
Other work on display includes turned bowls by Andrew Early, furniture from Koop Design, paper flowers from the award-winning Shaw Sisters and phenomenal beadwork from members of the Hillcrest Aids Centre.
Meeting the Makers: Contemporary Craft in KZN opens at the Tatham Art Gallery Pietermaritzburg on Thursday 28th July at 18h00 and runs until Sunday 18th September at 17h00 Tatham Art Gallery:

Orda is a contemporary artist who obtained a B.Tech in fine arts in 1997. In 2005 she received a UNESCO bursary to participate in an artists residency programme in Colombia, where she became involved with the street art scene. She’s explored and interpreted the concept of street art and the result is a body of work that is energetic and edgy, but also very ‘hangable’. She now lives in Cape Town. (the last two pieces are from her Flickr page)
Check out her latest exhibition titled ‘Moniker’ which features portraits of well-known street artists. She uses traditional aerosol sprays to create works that redefine identities as a mark of contemporary life.
The exhibition is on at Worldart Gallery, 54 Church Street, Cape Town. www.worldart.co.za from 7 – 28 May.
